The Age Grading of Physical Activity among Children.
Ostrow, Andrew C.; And Others
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v24 n2 p101-11 1986-87
Preschool children (N=102) viewed sex facial pictures of two fictitiously aged adults and then rated competence of the adults on six physical activities. Children's assessments of the competence of adult participation in physical activity were largely dictated by their perceptions of the adult's age. Adults perceived as older were rated as less proficient at each activity. (Author/NB)
